Allright I replaced all my fans except for the 200mm ones with Nexus Realsilent 120mm's, including the H50 push pull setup.

My PC is now inaudible lol! Loudest part is my HD. I stresstested the GPU with Furmark and the CPU with fPrime at a core speed of 3.9 Ghz and 1.23vcore to see if my temps wouldn't explode over 100 degrees. They all kept within safe margin, my CPU never went above 72 degrees and my GPU stayed under 76 with almost the lowest fan settings (using a musashi cooler).

I am really REALLY happy with this case. It has done everything I have asked from it and my standards are very high.

I have it sitting next to my right ear and I cannot hear it at all. Under load the sound remains the same and my temps are well within safe margins.

So I finally did it, I build a PC that is quieter than my MacPro and is a lot faster!

My black one is now finished, next up is the white and red one. I'll post some pics once I get them all finished in the same room, they look magnificent together!

I'm just curious what you plan on doing with all three computers. It seems like spending that much money for three builds all at once would be nuts! But i sure would like to see them all together!

Also, which directions are peoples fans facing? I am just curious since I kept all the stock ones as normal, and added a 140mm on front doing intake and a 200mm on top doing intake. The other 200mm one didn't fit on the side due to my heatsink. Should I face my fans other directions for the best cooling?

My rule of thumb is to have the front and sides intaking air, and the top and rear exhausting (heat rises anyways).

Hi Everybody!

I have looked through a bunch of forums and reviews but none of them seem to offer a solution for my problem.

I have ordered my white phantom yesterday and since then encountered many problems.
Such as : That nearly none of the High End Air Coolers for example: Cooler Master V10 or Noctua DH-14 can be mounted without having to remove at least one of the cases fans...but the case also seems to have problems with my favourite Closed Watercooler the Corsair H70 ....I want to install ALL the optional fans in this case TO HAVE perfect airflow and additionally I want the best CPU Cooler that works best with the cases airlow and from what I have heard and seen reviewwise the noctua and the H70 are the best on the market in my price range of 100 Dollars.

So in conclusion I want to use all the fans in the case and I want one of the top CPU coolers in a range of 100 Dollars (Air or closed Water) that work with the phantom size and airflowwise.
If you guys have expierence with mounting either the noctua or the h70 or any other top cooler without any loss of any fans and good airflow of the case please inform me as quickly as possible(Because I have seen some h70 solutions by mounting it on the optical drive stand while it is being supplied with cool air from the 140 fan in the front and exhausts into the case http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-..._3826251_n.jpg
).

If not please give me some suggestions for other good CPU Coolers that will fit perfectly and won´t cause any problems with the phantoms fans and airflow.

Just fyi my favoured coolers are the h70 and the noctua dh-14.

Thx guys.

I am also wondering if the H70 will work with the optional side 200 fan before i order them.

I mean just look at how this guy mounted the h70.


I did not know you could also mount it sideways? that way it is not high enough to interfere with the top fan and not thick enough to mess with the sidepanel fan right?


But other than that I am still waiting for anwers on what´s the best fitting and performing CPU Cooler for the phantom...on that will allow me to keep ALL the optional fans , that performs good and wont kill airflow...Noctua DH-14 is out of the race I guess I am not sure about the h70 cause I heard that there are new phantom cases with lower 120 mm rear mounting holes.+

Give me some advice on that matter
And tell me what would be the best possible way to arrange the airflow of the case my guess would be

140 mm Front :Intake
2x 120mm Side: Intake
200 mm Side:Intake
h70 Push/Pull (exhaust into case)
First 200 mm Top :Exhaust (will absorb the hot air coming from the h70)
Second 200mm Top with filter:Intake

Is there a better way to set up the airflow?

Why couldn't you mount the reservoir in the second 200 mm hole shouldn't be that hard of a mod?
